    We have a four month old that has been acting pretty fiesty lately, when I go out the feed them, if I hesitate at all to give Joesiphine her's first she will open her mouth wide and let out a deep "RAAAAAAAAAAAA" until I hand her something. It's pretty scary [​IMG] She is clearly yelling at me [​IMG] Brat! Anyway, I am getting worried that she might turn out to be a boy [​IMG] I looked up some pictures of Turkens and the hens seem to have a big comb and wattles, but I would like your opinion about this behaivor at four months and nine days???

    No, the hens do not have large wattles or a large comb. The roosters do, however.
